The X120e is without a doubt an improvement over the X100e in terms of battery life, thermals, and performance, and considering we've always loved its classic looking chassis and amazingly comfortable keyboard, we're obviously pretty taken with the affordable little laptop.

The AMD Fusion-powered ThinkPad X120e is an 11-inch ultraportable that's better and more affordable than last year's model, making it an even better choice for small-business buyers.

This is not an ultraportable, though Lenovo refers to it as such; rather, it's one of the best netbooks ever.

If you're looking for a lightweight business notebook at an affordable price, the ThinkPad X120e is a strong option that provides much better performance than dual-core business netbooks such as the HP Mini 5103 ($542) for hundreds less than a high-end business ultraportable like the ThinkPad...

In general, Lenovo delivered the goods, but it isn't perfect. For starters, several other companies have risen to the challenge of making good netbook alternatives. The new HP Pavilion dm1z might be a consumer ultraportable, but at the time of this writing the dm1z offers essentially the same...

Something to keep in mind in this review, its a netbook. I am rating it like a netbook. So I have a Lenovo Thinkpad x120e. And I have to say I love it. To get this out of the way my internals are the E-350 dual core 1.6GHz with ATI HD6310 integrated graphics, a 320GB 7200RPM drive, 6GBs of...

The Lenovo ThinkPad X120e really caters to the ThinkPad and X Series enthusiast: it sports an industrial, no-nonsense look, sub 12" matte display, and that iconic red nub in an ultra small package. That portability, however, comes at a price: what you're getting, buy buying in, is essentially a...

This has proven to be the absolute best portable computer I've ever owned. Not only does it have a really good feel to it. It also was very easy to upgrade the HD to a SSD and with the Virtualization support as well as integrated GPU I can run VMs very nicely and play WoW. Amazing machine.

I love this little thing. It's got a lot of bang for its buck and it works as a great accessory to my desktop.

If you want decent performance and screen size on the go, X120e is for you. If you are on a budget or have really small hands, netbooks may be fine too. If you are rich, there may be nice computers there. But for the price you pay for the X120e, you maybe hard pressed to find anything as portable...

I bought this X120e with AMD's E-350 processor as a replacement for my Asus 1005 HAB. I loved the netbook size for taking to work and to classes, but not the fact that it struggled with video, had crappy battery life and was a chore to type a paper on. The Lenovo x120e has solved those...
